March 24 After the Darkness

Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:13–16

Key Verses: Colossians 1:13–14

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Think about a time in your life when you were sitting comfortably in a brightly lit room during a thunderstorm. Perhaps you had an overhead light, a lamp, and the television illuminating everything in view. Then, without warning, you heard a loud crash of thunder and everything in the house went completely dark. Suddenly, your own corner of the world disappeared, and you sat shaken in a blanket of darkness.

The dark can be rather intimidating, can’t it? In one fell swoop, our masterfully created eyes are rendered useless. In a room through which we normally run without thinking, we are required to go slowly, one step at a time, judging each stride carefully against a mental image of the room’s layout.

While most people do not like this feeling of helplessness, there are some benefits. For example, the slow pace causes us to stop and make decisions: Do I take one more step? Is this as far as I should go? Also, the dark times make us better appreciate the moments in life when things are crystal clear.

Sometimes, our spiritual lives seem to darken a bit, and we find ourselves inching along with our hand stretched out before us as we desperately seek the Lord. Don’t fear these times. Instead, treasure them as moments when God wants you to tread carefully and make wise decisions. When the darkness is over, you will be amazed at how brightly His glory can shine.

Lord, when life is at its darkest and I am inching my way along, rather than give in to fear, help me to trust You to guide my steps.[1]

March 24 Abundant Life

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 43

Key Verses: Isaiah 43:18–19

Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

In The Root of the Righteous, A. W. Tozer urged readers, “Keep your feet on the ground, but let your heart soar as high as it will. Refuse to be average or to surrender to the chill of your spiritual environment.”

As believers, we must live out the truth given to us in Hebrews 11. Our citizenship is registered in heaven where we have an eternal destiny. When we view life with this perspective, our outlook is positive and hope filled.

We are fully alive through Jesus Christ, who lives in us by the power of His Spirit. In fact, we are much more alive now that we have received God’s Son as our Savior than when we walked this earth in physical form only. We are alive eternally to spiritual things that were once beyond our ability to understand.

The Old Testament saints could only imagine what was to come. They lived and died in their faith. However, they were not disappointed. Their devotion to God—and His to them—was sufficient for all their needs.

Are you living as Tozer suggested, keeping your feet firmly planted in the truth of God’s Word, all the while dreaming and thinking of what God has for you in the not-so-distant future? This is the faith that draws you even closer to the reality of God’s precious love. Jesus came so that we might have abundant life now—a tiny foretaste of what is yet to be.

Almighty God, I want to keep my feet on the ground while my heart soars to heights unlimited. Help me not to surrender to the chill of my spiritual environment. Plant my feet firmly in Your Word as I dream of the unlimited future You have planned for me.[1]

KEY TAKEAWAYS TO MUELLER REPORT: NO COLLUSION — NO OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE! — VICTORY FOR TRUMP — The Gateway Pundit

Attorney General Bill Barr released his letter to Congress Sunday afternoon summarizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

BREAKING: AG Bill Barr Releases Letter Summarizing Mueller’s Report: “Special Counsel DID NOT FIND Trump Campaign Conspired with Russia”

NO COLLUSION — NO OBSTRUCTION!

FOX legal expert Jake Gibson told the FOX audience this is a BIG WIN for President Trump.

Reuters reported:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election did not find that any U.S. or Trump campaign officials knowingly conspired with Russia, according to details released on Sunday.

Attorney General William Barr sent a summary of conclusions from the report to congressional leaders and the media on Sunday afternoon. Mueller concluded his investigation on Friday after nearly two years, turning in a report to the top U.S. law enforcement officer.

BREAKING: Mueller States: ‘While This Report Does Not Conclude That the President Committed a Crime, It Also Doesn’t Exonerate Him — The Gateway Pundit

Attorney General Bill Barr delivered a 4-page letter to Congress on Sunday afternoon summarizing Mueller’s main finding after two years of a witch hunt against President Trump.

The summary was released Sunday afternoon and it showed that Mueller did not exonerate President Trump of obstruction of justice or find that he committed a crime.

Mueller’s Report also said: “Special Counsel DID NOT FIND Trump Campaign Conspired with Russia”

This of course is perfect fodder for the Democrats – and they will use this to keep harassing the President and to keep investigating him.

Mueller’s attempted coup of President Trump ended on Friday when he gave his final report to the Justice Department and AG Bill Barr with no new indictments.

Barr sent a letter to Congress on Friday confirming that Mueller had free rein to investigate and do whatever he wanted — Mueller was basically King of the Justice Department for almost two years.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) sounded off on Sunday.

Leftist strategy for socialist ‘takeover’ revealed | WND

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. (video screenshot)

A commentator who recently released a video analysis charging that freshman U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is actually an “actress” and “puppet” of political operatives now has released a new series of charges.

This time, he alleges, leftists plan to run extremists under both the Democratic and Republican party banners in primaries to ensure an extremist wins.

It is actor, writer and political commentator Christopher Patrick Kohls, operating under the moniker of Mr Reagan, who has released the new claims.

Naming names and playing recordings of their boasts, he explains some of those who worked with Ocasio-Cortez on her surprising primary and general election victories are openly talking about tricking even Republicans into voting for socialists “they thought were conservatives.”

They plan to look for someone within each district that fits the culture of that district but is a dedicated leftist. Then, whether they run as a Democrat or a Republican, the leftists are controlling the results.

The video:

He says the organizer behind the project is a political activist named Zack Exley, who once suggested finding 500 Elizabeth Warrens and running them for Congress “as a slate.”

“These people believe they will be benevolent dictators,” Mr Reagan explained.

But they are communists with a touch of social-justice warrior, anti-white and anti-Christian.

“Their bigotry stems from what they believe is a noble goal, social justice,” he said.

Not only are they trying to take over Congress, they have the same plan for district attorneys nationwide, since it those officials who decide on prosecutions, which cases to drop, sentencings and more.

In his earlier video, Mr Reagan said Ocasio-Cortez “is not really the congresswoman of New York’s 14th Congressional District.”

“She is essentially an actress. She’s merely playing the part of a New York congresswoman.”

Kohls explains that in 2017, a progressive group that formed in response to Trump’s election called the Justice Democrats held “auditions” for potential congressional candidates to run on their platform.

As evidence, he runs a clip from a Justice Democrats video.

“Back in 2016, we put out a call for nominations,” says the group’s executive director, Alexandra Rojas. “We got over 10,000 nominations. Out of those 10,000 nominations, we found Alexandria.”

Ocasio-Cortez herself, in another video, says her brother nominated her.

“My brother told me that he had sent my nomination in the summer, but I was, like, literally working out of a restaurant then. And I was like, there’s no way,” she says.

Justice Democrats, on its website, says it aims to reform the Democratic Party by running “a unified campaign to replace every corporate-backed member of Congress.”

In a feature on the group, the New York Times noted that in 2018, Justice Democrats endorsed 78 candidates and recruited 12 to run for office.

Of those 12, Ocasio-Cortez was the only one who won her general election.

However, six other endorsed candidates won, and among them are two other freshman House members who have joined Ocasio-Cortez in challenging the power of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Muslim Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

Michael Goodwin: Why Obama and Clinton should now be probed

What did President Obama and his administration do, and why did they do it?

Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation, it is tempting to breathe a sigh of relief and assume that our long national nightmare is over. Resist the temptation, the assumption is false.

We are not close to the end. Not by a long shot.

In fact, I believe the last two years, as traumatic as they were, will prove to be the easier part of the nightmare, because Mueller dealt only with whether Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with Russia to swing the election. Based on what we know so far, especially that no more indictments are coming, it appears that Mueller’s answer is no, there was no collusion or obstruction of justice.

If true, this is an enormous vindication for Trump, who insisted all along that he had done nothing wrong. Supporters were understandably in a celebratory mood, with some saying on Twitter that it felt like 2016 election night all over again.

Meanwhile, Trump’s vindication is a devastating rebuke to Democrats and their media handmaidens, all of whom insisted his guilt was guaranteed. Their legacy is that they ruined their own credibility, and their continuing efforts to destroy him by innuendo and investigation can only add to their disgrace.
